OFF TOPIC: ‘Fact has become a political issue’

Climate scientist Robert Kopp's phone has been ringing off the hook this week, Greenwire reports in this Q&A with the Lab co-director. A professor at Rutgers University who studies rising seas and other effects of global climate change, Kopp has been fielding interview requests to defend the latest volume of the National Climate Assessment, a federal 1,700-page climate report President Trump has publicly dismissed. In this interview Kopp talks about the significance of the national climate assessment, what drove him to study climate change, and how he responds to criticism.
